Oscars 2008

Despite not having seen a single nominated film (and not even being sure I saw any movie at the theaters this year), and knowing it'd be just as boring and bloated this year as it is every year, I found myself watching the Oscars from red carpet to credits, as I inevitably knew I would.

It was just about as I expected: mostly plodding, dull, and onanastic. On the positive side, though, the set was pretty, the swing band on the stage worked a lot better than I anticipated, Hugh Jackman was charming and congenial and did a great opening number, and Queen Latifah's singing "I'll Be Seeing You" fantastically during the Annual Dead People's Popularity Contest was touching.

My only comment on the winners is that I was surprisingly sad to see Mickey Rourke lose. It can't be easy after winning EVERYTHING ELSE and have the world pretty much assume you have it sown up to then lose. (The Academy so gave it to Penn, BTW, as a sop to Teh Gayz, because they were going to give Best Picture to Slumdog Millionaire.) And, I mean, his beloved dog just died not even a week ago! Way to go, Academy. Loki is looking down from heaven and growling up a storm.

As for the only thing anyone really cares about -- the clothes of the stars -- Best Dressed among the women were Taraji P. Hensen, Anne Hathaway, Halle Berry, and Tina Fey of all people, and among the sharp men in tuxes, the hottest was, inconceivably, Seth Rogen.

The Slumdog Millionaire kids were frickin' adorable, BTW. And I can confirm, as a viewer of Skins on BBCAmerica, that Dev Patel has a great ass.

So that was the 2008 Oscars! See you next you for another orgy of self-congratulation and mutual admiration!

Fun With Spam

I received recently the most extraordinarily random email ever the other day:

As far as Google is concerned, it's a collection of bits from George R. R. Martin's (extraordinary, highly-recommended, BTW) A Song of Ice and Fire series. But what does it mean?!? I'm perplexed and intrigued. Is it some inscrutable spam, or some more mysterious message sent to me by a stranger for a reason beyond mortal ken? I just don't think I'll ever know.

New Link

Welcome to the sidebar Young, Hung and Full of Cum, the domain of the charming Briton Aaron Butterfield. Definitely NSFW, but well worth a look.

The Gay Mind

This story of a young gay man doing what he loves in defiance of common gender norms and the opinion of others is stirring and heartwarming. Watching the video, however, all I could think was, "Girrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrl, that hair is tres tragique! You look like Ed Grimly. Step away from the product, pronto!"

For want of anything else, I watched the BAFTAs (British Oscars, basically) tonight. I have no real opinions on the winners, since I don't even think I was at the movies this year, but I'm always amazed at how they move at a quick, smooth clip, and finish on-time at about two hours (two-and-a-half on BBC America, with commercials) while not tastelessly playing everyone off in the middle of thanking their mother. Meanwhile, the Oscars are slow, plodding, always running over, and about ten hours. It bruises my jingoistic side that the damn Limeys can do an awards show better than us. We won the Revolution, you know!

Oh, and BTW, Sharon Stone is totally craaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaazy.

Bad Dog!

You will find no great canine admirer than I; put a dog in my vicinity and I turn into a pile of baby-talking goo. However, even I wouldn't touch that new Disney movie with the puppies in space. What a pile of shit! And if that's just from watching the previews, imagine how awful the movie itself is! I mean, seriously, a puppy saying "dawg"? Ugh.
